The Worst Malt Liquor/Energy Drink of My Weekend…

posted by on March 3 at 15:15 PM

Was, without a doubt, Joose. From the intentionally misspelled name to the terrible logo design to the ungainly big-gulp size of the can, this truly is the malt liquor/energy drink combination of Juggalos, meth heads, and the otherwise unemployable. Seriously, guys. Have a Sparks. Mix some whiskey into a bottle of coke. Down an airplane bottle of vodka with a Redbull. Chase yellow-jackets with Pabst if you have to. Just please don’t “wease” the Joose.

I think Joose tastes much better than its competitors. Smooth, not much carbonation, easy to drink fast. 9.9% alcohol. Don't sip the Hatorade, Grandy. Sometimes you need to embrace your inner-unemployed.

Isn't this the punchline to the old "What do you get when you squeeze a synagogue" joke?

I really don't like the idea of exceptionally drunk people having lots of energy. I appreciate the mercy that is the passed out drunk.

Might I suggest the Brass Monkey.

The Brass Monkey has been my staple for several years now. I normally don't go for the "energy beer" unless i know it's going to be a long night. Nothing beats OE/OJ for the price.

Joose is truly the Juggalo's choice. Kirby would know.

i'm not feeling sparks 7.0. maybe it's because it was at room temperature (or more) when i drank it, but it was like battery acid. i'll stick to the 6.0.

7.0 scared me at first but now it's part of my routine whenever I have to do anything that requires being up after 12am. I am starting to feel really old.

Joose is gross, but did anyone see that Seattle Weekly article a few weeks back where they were blaming it for subverting the Alcohol Impact Zones around town? that I do have to give them props for. fuck the Man and his classist alcohol laws.

Whatever happened to just getting drunk? Mixing caffeine and booze is for frat boys and hipsters.

Energy b00z3 is enough of an objective experience that logos and such are second to it's ALC/VOL and whether or not I'd end up in the hospital after having one. I'm convinced that JOOSE is never a "good" idea but if I must...I'm with Kribby on this one.

What the hell is a Juggalo?

Jugs + Bimbo is my guess, but that's a new one to me. I suddenly feel old.

Malt Liquor is bad idea no matter what you mix it with IMHO. Coffee and bonghits on the other hand... ;)

Juggalos are people that see this when they fire up FireFox.

a good intro to the world of the evil clowns: http://whatisajuggalo.com/


the "success stories/mailbag" is absolutely hilarious, frightening, and riveting.


Joose is finally hitting critical mass! Two of those for under $4 is a great way to get the parted started (bro)

Everyone knows that (green) Tilt is the best alternaholic beverage to be had. It's like the sweet nectar that drips off the gods' collective ballsacks.
